The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform (CBR) is an American pro-life organization promulgating views of the right to life for the unborn, disabled, infirm, aged and other vulnerable groups. The CBR was founded in July 1990 as a privately funded, non-profit educational corporation. Its slogan is "abortion represents an evil so inexpressible that words fail us when attempting to describe its horror. Until abortion is seen, it will never be understood." The Executive Director of the CBR is Gregg Cunningham, a former Republican member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives who has also held a number of other government positions. He was a member of the Reagan administration. The CBR is strictly non-violent.
The CBR advocates displaying graphic pictures of aborted fetuses. The use of shocking abortion photos has resulted in the CBR being a relatively controversial organization. The CBR considers the pictures necessary in order to induce people to understand what abortion really is.
